Nutrition Tip of the Day - January 21, 2011

nutrition tips

Today's Nutrition Tip:

Keep the skin on your chicken during cooking, but don't eat it. The majority of fat in chicken is in the skin. A 4 oz chicken breast contains around 10 grams of fat with the skin, but only 1.5 grams of fat without the skin. That's ok, it is easily removed. However removing it before cooking sometimes results in dry chicken. So keep the skin on during roasting and then remove it afterward to help ensure moist, flavorful chicken.


  1. omg! i know that you are right, but the skin is the best part. don't eat it though. lol

  2. Beverly, I agree with you. When I was a little kid and my parents would get fried chicken, I would eat the crunchy skin and leave the chicken sitting there on my plate :) I am more than happy to remove the skin now and just eat the chicken. It does serve its purpose to keep the chicken moist though. Nothing is worse than dry chicken!
